For spacers, get hubcentric wheel spacers. I use Spydertrax 1.5 inch.
Your tires will be 32.8 inch diameter, mine are 32 on a 2 inch lift, so I would think they would work with your 4 inch lift and wheel spacers. As to the stock wheels with 285/70/17's, I think you would be ok.

2007 XK Limited, 5.7L Hemi, QDII, Rusty's 2" lift, Spidertrax 1.5 inch wheel spacers, GetLost4x4's front hitch mount for portable winch.GY Duratracs 265/70R17s , Rola Roof Rack, diy built spare tire mount for the roof rack.

Can you post pics of your XK with the superlift? Before and after new tires?

The motor will show signs of decreased performance with the larger tires, but there are ways around it. Gearing would be the cheapest. On the other end of the spectrum would be a turbo. Then again people told me I'd be disappointed with my 4cyl. YJ running 33x12.50x15's with stock gearing and an automatic. I'm not.

Oh ya, I plow with it too!
